Clean, very well stocked, comfortable. About 45 minutes drive to Kona.
This 3 bedroom/bath home is well sized and located for a family. Access to the private beach was easy. The bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas were a plus.
My husband booked this condo for my 75th birthday visit. Our youngest daughter, her husband and 5 year old granddaughter stayed with us. What a great location! We walked across the grassy garden to the pool and enjoyed snorkeling at the Mauna Lani beach club. Everything was clean and worked well. We will book here again.
Beautiful property with pristinely manicured grounds in gated community. Close to pool and work out facility. Easy access to golf, beaches, and marketplace all within Mauna Lani development. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
This was a fantastic property for our family vacation. With a great location and access to the Beach Club we could not have asked for anything better!
We have been to the Big Island numerous time, this is our first VRBO. The condo location is perfect, bikes included were such a bonus and the condo offered everything we needed. The only downside is the neighborhood has strict quiet hours, so for us on a 6 hr time difference morning coffee outside was restricted, along with star gazing.
We've stayed in the area before; this was our first time staying at the Golf Villas. We really enjoyed how close it is to the Beach Club and that it is smaller than other complexes.
The condo was perfect for our family, the close access to the pool was a plus. We all rode the bikes to the market together, which was a lot of fun, great that this condo offers this extra amenity.
It has enough space to have your family spend time together and get their down time too.
If you're looking for a home base for your vacation, this rental is a very good option.
This was a very clean property.
It had everything that we needed in this property. One thing is that the dinning chairs are becoming worn down and need to be replace. We had a great time here.
Loved it. The location and property are great. Very easy to communicate with owners…had a couple of glitches which they took care of immediately. The beach club and bikes were added bonus. I’d recommend.
After loading up on groceries at Costco, we drove the short 35min trip north through the black lava fields and came to the beautiful Puako area. The townhouse is nestled within a gated community that is surrounded by a manicured golf course. We were quickly surprised by how perfect the three bedroom, three bathroom townhouse was for us. My in-laws, wife and toddler, were staying in the house, the ground floor bedroom was perfect for the grandparents, no stairs to climb, while the mastesuite was spacious and had its own balcony for quiet morning coffees. Who am I kidding, with a busy toddler none of our mornings could be described as quiet but thanks to the green grass and 100 step distance to the pool we were able to easily keep him entertained. Speaking of the pool, it was perfect for our toddler to learn to swim. The deepest part is only chest high for an adult but it has many sitting edges and stairs for new swimmers to explore. There were multiple families swimming but with the unique shape of the pool it always felt like we had our own little spot. There is also a hot tub, that my wife and I were able to use later in the evening while the grandparents were putting the kiddo down for the night. There are many lounge chairs and even a BBQ in the pool area to use. The townhouse grants access to an exclusive beach which is only a 5 min drive or 10 min bike ride away. The parking lot fills up quickly in the morning so I actually had to drive the family to the beach drop them off with all the towels and then drive back to the unit and ride a bike back to the beach. It was easy and made the dip in the ocean feel like a reward. Where did I get the bike from you may ask, it is free to use as part of the rental. I believe there were at least 5 beach cruisers for use, as well as sand toys, pool noodles, beach chairs, basically everything you could need. The house also has everything you could want, laundry machine and dryer, dishwasher, large fridge and plenty of cupboard space to unpack all of the groceries. Large dinner table inside as well as a great outdoor covered area to dine alfresco. Also a great outdoor cooking area with a BBQ for grilling up a meal after a long day swimming. The area is quiet at night perfect to get some rest or just a short drive from restaurants, like the lava lava club if you want to get out. Can't say enough good things about the house or the quick professional responses from our hosts. Book now, thank me later.
This luxury home is everything a VRBO should be!
1) Beautifully decorated and maintained home.
2) Gorgeous resort surroundings, including beach and golf.
2) Excellent, helpful owner communications.
3) Fully equipped kitchen, even birthday cake candles!
4) Garage filled with bikes, beach equipment and kids play toys.
We hated to leave, and would return in a heartbeat!
Loved the location with access to the pool and the Mauna Lani Beach Club.
We loved the unit! It was perfect for our needs! It was a beautiful unit - clean, stocked kitchen, lots of room, centrally located, very quick to respond to questions, had access to the beach with amazing snorkeling opportunities, amazing amenities, and so much more! We definitely would stay here again!
This location was ideal for our family. The Villa is super comfortable and we loved it. The swimming pool is right outside our back porch and it is great! We loved spending time at the beach club as well. I had a few minor questions that were answered in a timely manner by Laurie. Thank you for that!!
My family and I (6 adults 2 small kids) thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Big Island, much credited to the amazing amenities provided at the condo. The place was spacious, clean, welcoming, and fully stocked (bathrooms, kitchen, and the garage!). The hosts were very kind and welcoming, and provided us with water, snacks, and a personalized beach bag. The condo and the community is extremely kid friendly, including the nearby private beach, which also had great snorkeling. I would definitely stay here again.
This is our second time renting this beautiful home and we cant wait for our third! This end unit is located, in what we feel is the best area of all the Golf Villas.
There is a huge grassy area for the grandkids to play and it is steps to the pool. Thank you Laurie & Kevin for welcoming us back with the special beach bag and goodies! We'll be back!

Our group of 7 (3 teens, parents, grandparents) had a fantastic stay at this property. We appreciated the excellent kitchen and comfortable furnishings, as well as having multiple bathrooms. The location was a highlight, being a great base from which we explored both near and far. We would not hesitate to stay again!
This house served us well as a home base. However, most or the advertised extra amenities and beach items were either broken, mismatched or both. For example, we arrived to what appeared to be ample snorkel and fin sets only to find that it was actually 5-6+ sets of broken fins mixed in with some good and usable fins and no usable masks or snorkels. It feels more like a dumping ground of old cast-off gear. Even the bikes, which we were all very excited about, were either broken, flat or both.
We arrived to smoke alarms beeping and a broken faucet. The manager was accessible but it took a while to find the beeping smoke alarm as it had been tucked away in a random bag in the locked owners closet. The home was nice enough and could be great with some maintenance and upkeep as it looks and feels like a full time rental with needed attention and TLC to an aging unit.
Amazing property! Just as described and even better in person! Immaculately clean with a welcome bag to boot. Such a special and thoughtful gift. We were touched! Loved every minute there. Already recommended it to a scuba diving friend! Thank you so much for renting your beautiful home to us!
This is a great property for families looking to enjoy the beach and other outdoor activities in the Mauna Lani area. The townhouse's garage is stocked with multiple bikes, a paddleboard, beach toys, boogie boards, and more--if you were to rent all those items you'd probably spend hundreds of dollars. There is a nice grassy area beyond the lanai, and the unit is very close to the pool. We don't have small kids, but I noticed the place had pack-n-plays, a high chair and even spare diapers. Nice layout. We will definitely stay there again.
Our vacation was wonderful. The property and location was perfect.
Having the highchair and pack and play ready for our one year old was a big help. "MAHALO"
By far the best equipped VRBO we have ever stayed in. Condo is spotless, well maintained, and it’s kitchen is stocked with whatever you may need if you decide to cook in. Garage is full of multiple bicycles, a paddle board, and other water toys. Unit is an a great location and our hosts were very responsive to our queries. In summary — a fantastic place to stay!
Everything we hoped it to be, and then some. Perfect location for my family's vacation style.
The townhouse is in a beautiful location and looks just like the pictures. It is well stocked with everything needed to have a comfortable week. The pool is right out the back patio and beach less than a mile away. There is a restaurant at the beach with chairs and umbrella. Our grandkids loved the paddle board and other toys in the garage. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen and patio grill. There is everything you need to prepare and serve meals. The property owners went above and beyond to answer questions and make us comfortable. They have a lot of the Aloha Spirit! We will rent this property again when our travels bring us to The Big Island.
What a wonderful property! We loved our stay here and would not change a thing. Pool right outside the backdoor; all the needed amenities; beautifully decorated; comfortable beds; fully stocked kitchen…Would definitely recommend this house.
Great location, very well stocked kitchen, bathrooms, everything. Perfect for a family or large group. Great hosts.
From booking the reservation to our actual time at this home, our experience with the owner and the entire property was excellent. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Kona. Most importantly it was very clean, conveniently located, one of the closest units to the swimming pool and the amenities provided were much more than adequate (more than we even used). Hosts were very friendly and responded to any questions promptly. I felt very welcome and had a very enjoyable stay.
Everything about this VRBO was perfect! It is a very clean, beautiful home as well as on beautiful grounds, close to the beach, hasall the beach things you would need in the garage, and they left us a personalized beach bag as a welcome gift! We would rent here again!!!
The location is great for families, with the beach club close by for all things water related and several very good beaches nearby for more adventure. We found everything we needed there for a fantastic family getaway. Highly recommend this property and location.
My family of 5 had a wonderful vacation staying in this beautiful home. There was plenty of space to spread out but also spend meals together on the lanai or in the dining room. Everything about the property was just as described, clean and comfortable with great amenities. We swam in the pool, rode bikes to the private beach, night snorkeled with Manta rays and deep sea fishing where we caught 4, 20 lb Ono! So much to do that is all close by including many sandy beaches, shopping and restaurants. Thankful for the perfect family vacation!
Six nights here in March 2022. unit is great with all you could want. Online photos are accurate. Condo was clean, furnishings newer, lots of fun stuff in garage. Only minor thing is that it was roasting hot inside when we got there at 11pm. We couldn’t cook it down well the first night to sleep but it was great thereafter.
Community pool is nice and pretty quiet. The complex is a little stricter than some… no “toys” in the pool meant we watched the property manager take away a tiny ball from a couple of little kids, which seemed a bit excessive. I got the sense the owners (many of whom were around) grumble a lot if rental families disturb the peace. It didn’t bother us personally though.
Community beach is just OK. Best part was having parking at the shoreline to walk / run the fishpond paths which we did daily. Beach itself wasn’t too busy - always had chairs - but the bottom is so rocky! We went up to Hapuna 2 days for best sandy bottom beach and boogie boarding with great waves. It was maybe 12 minutes drive and the highlight of the trip. Used all the gear in the garage for these excursions and was terrific.
This property felt like home! It was just what we expected. The only thing is that the HOA had too many rules that were a bit excessive for the price we paid. For example we were riding one of the bikes and came back to grab some water which we left the bike on the patio with intentions to going back out riding. Two minutes later Security knocked on the door and told us the bike can not be left on on the patio.
What a great place to stay! I went for a short 4 day weekend trip to celebrate my birthday, and the place was perfect! Close to shops, restaurants and of course the beach! The place is well stock with everything you need to start a meal. One touch that really impressed me was the personalized tote bag with chips and water! That tells you a lot about the caring hosts!
Best place I have stayed at since I started vacationing in Hawaii for the last 30 years.
Wonderful property for golf and beach adventures. This home was very clean, spacious and filled with natural light. Nice pool, steps from the lanai. Lots of toys for the beach. Owners were great to deal with. Everything it was advertised to be. Rate this 5 out of 5, and would highly recommend it.
This beautiful property was exactly as advertised. Perfect for a family vacation. Spacious and well appointed accommodations in the heart of beautiful Mauna Lani. Close access (walkable or quick bike ride) to Mauna Lani Beach club. Wonderful experience.
This condo is really splendid - the ad is entirely representative, as it is large, on 2 floors, and with high end finishes. We particularly appreciated the little things, like how the kitchen is partially stocked with those items that seem silly to buy for a week, such as cooking oil, salt, and some spices. Generous supply of towels, linens, and paper goods. The owners were easy to deal with, and responsive. For example, the cruiser bikes provided include a bike lock, which sadly was missing. When I pointed this out, we were provided a replacement. All in all a great place to stay.
This home worked really well for our family. We loved the warm pool and lovely trees and plants and flowers. So peaceful yet close to all the activities we love.
We had an amazing 4 day vacation here!! The accommodations were spacious, immaculately clean, and gorgeous. Our family of four was able to spread out, rest, and relax. We loved the easy access to the community pool and really enjoyed walking along the fish pond and beach at the resort (a short drive away). We spent our days traveling around the island, swimming and snorkeling, eating delicious food, and thoroughly enjoying ourselves.
We would highly recommend this place!
We loved the condo and all its amenities. Clean, spacious, and full of utility. Had everything you needed for adventures and fun, bikes, beach gear, bbq grill, basic essentials. Issue is with the HOA and the nosy neighbors. We were not aware of all the rules and codes of Mauna Lani. Kids splashing in the pool were told to stop. Towels and noodle drying on the lanai were asked to be removed, while we saw other condos doing the same thing. Flew my drone for a quick snap and one neighbor started screaming. Majority of the occupants here are retirees and elderly so just be aware. This place is wonderful if you like a clean, safe and peaceful oasis, but for a fun-filled family with kids there are some limitations.
Enjoyed the home and location! Beach access was awesome. The house is fully equipped with anything you would need and more. Would definitely recommend.
This home and the property is exactly as shown and just as beautiful. The location to the pool and the easy trip to the beach was the best. We were a family of 6 which included a 4 and a 5 year old. You couldn't ask for a better beach or pool for them.
We did rent a 6 passenger golf cart that made trips to the beach and the grocery store a blast. The garage is FILLED with everything you need for the beach too. They even had fishing poles which was the icing on the cake for my avid fisherman of a Husband! We have only been home a little over a week but we are already discussing a return trip for next year. It was the best vacation ever!!! Thank you!
Everything was as advertised & even better. Very well stocked kitchen with all cookware & spices. Furniture & all beds were very comfortable. Plenty of nice towels and linens. Very convenient to pool and lived the private beach. Toys were plentiful for the whole family. I already booked our next vacation for next year.
The condo was perfect for our family. The kitchen contained everything we needed and it was also great to have a BBQ. The close proximity to the pool was wonderful and we especially appreciated all the beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc. which we used frequently. Access to the private beach was a real plus - an excellent snorkeling spot. Highly recommend this condo.
Nice home for exploring the Big Island's Kohala Coast. We enjoyed playing poker at the game table. The beach chairs, ice chests, umbrellas, and sand toys were a nice convenience. We didn't use the bikes as much as I thought we would.
Plenty of room for our family to unwind. The pool is just steps from the patio. It is a small pool used by owners who enjoy sharing information. We will definitely consider this home when we return to the Big Island.
What you see on line is what you get....plus there is more. The check in was easy and questions were answered easily by phone. We spent one day at the "Beach Club" which was easily accessed via the card provided. Other beach days were spent at Hapuna Beach, on other local beaches. The Kona coast has many sea turtles which were a delight to swim with. The beach chairs and umbrellas in the garage were great. We had a great time i a great place. The only glitch was the covid rules for Hawai'i. Of course, the Owners had no control over any of that.
This was the first time taking our children to Hawaii. We were so excited to stay at this condo. It did not disappoint us at all! This Condo is spacious, clean, well decorated and very comfortable for vacationing. Located on beautiful and well maintained grounds, close to the swimming pool but never noisy.
We were most impressed with how well stocked this condo is for every single need! From adventures at the beach to a well stocked kitchen, laundry, towels and every single bed was so comfortable. These owners made it so easy for us to spend quality time with our family and have all the equipment we needed to have fun on this beautiful island. The private beach is a great environment and easily accessible. Fun to ride the bikes around the area and grateful for the small market nearby. We loved our time here. Thank you for sharing your Beautiful island home with our family.
We loved the property. Very family & kids friendly. Kids loved to bike and the pool and beach gear was just perfect. We would love to stay again.
Beautiful area, beautiful condo within steps from the pool! We will absolutely be back! Thank you Kevin and family for sharing your amazing home with us!!
I have stayed in a lot vacation rentals and this is definitely at the top of my list! Not only was it spotless, it had literally everything you could possibly need! The snacks waiting for us was such a nice touch after a long trip and the garage full of all the beach gear and toys was an awesome perk!
The home is located in a beautiful and quiet community. I haven’t slept so well in months! We loved being right across from the pool and having access to the Mauna Lani Beach. If you get to the beach early enough (we were there over a holiday weekend so it was busy) you can get a covered lounge chair - it was so comfy and convenient that we stayed all day.
The Mauna Lani is an awesome location! It’s close to all of our favorite beaches and not too far from Kona or Waimea. Having the bikes was great but it was a warm week and the kids didn’t use them as much as we hoped as it was just far enough that they weren’t feeling it 😂 I would recommend renting a golf cart during your stay! We learned that you could rent them when we arrived but they didn’t have any available so book it in advance! That way you can get to the beach and the shops easily - especially if you only have one vehicle.
The owners of the property were awesome to work with and check in could not have been any easier. Thank you for sharing your home! We can’t wait to be back!
We stayed in this Vrbo and due to an emergency had to extend our stay on the island and find another Vrbo. We absolutely hated leaving this perfect location and rental. The rental was not only equipped with everything we needed from Kleenex boxes (much appreciated during our emergency situation!) to beach toys, towels, bikes etc. Location is quiet and away from the business of "resortville". We appreciated the beach access which also had a restaurant, lounge chairs and rentals such as paddle boards and kayaks at the beach location. We were able to use the bikes to ride to and from the marketplace, but it was a ways and temperatures warm, so we chose to drive often. Favorite things: the quiet pool area just steps outside, outdoor grill, smell of flowering trees, griddle for pancakes, rice cooker, salt/pepper and a few spices, regular coffee maker and a kuerig, all the beach gear-coolers, floats, snorkel gear, washer dryer, quiet master patio in the morning, electric key lock (rather than having to find a key), quiet and super clean area! We were there for the Ironman which was held at the Fairmont, location was close enough to bike if needed. Will definitely stay again!
